In addition to taking off and landing on the runway, aircraft must be able to maneuver on land for a number of reasons. Whether moving out of the way of oncoming traffic or pulling up to a certain position, aircraft must be able to safely move from one place to another. While using the engines as a power source is an obvious choice, this option is not always feasible. As such, aircraft may choose from a few options when traveling on the ground, those of which we will cover in detail in the following blog.

Landing lights have been modernized in design to reduce energy consumption and overall costs. Typically used during takeoff and landing, pilots are expected to use these lights to make their aircraft more noticeable during routine procedures and while in crowded airspaces. However, in emergency situations where other means of communication have failed, landing lights can also be used to communicate with air traffic controllers and on-ground personnel. To better understand the purpose of landing lights, this blog will briefly highlight their uses, and how they help keep aircraft safe when in flight.

A gyroscope flight instrument is a disk, or wheel, mounted on an instrument that is designed to measure angular velocity by utilizing the principle of gyroscopic inertia. Once the wheel has been accelerated, its inertia keeps the disc stable about its axis of rotation. When the instrument is level in flight, a deviation in flight path will move the gyroscopic wheel in its gimbal mount. This movement is then translated to a needle, or card, on the instruments face. Pilots use a gyroscopic attitude indicator, a directional gyroscope, and turn indicators for navigation purposes.
